Model A - Angry Hippo [SiS-07]

by Model A

Published
Topics Indie


Model A is Alan Foreman or Alan Foreman is Model A. I dont really know but this ep is just perfect. On one side you have the urgency, poignancy and melodic power of the first records of Modest Mouse and Havergal. On the other side you have the precision, passion and energy just below the surface of the ocean like in the first Mercury Rev records and those from almost unknown but ultimately mythical Rollerskate Skinny.

Its really too easy to fall in love with these songs. Please reserve some space in your record collection at the letter M for the next coming years.

Subject: Review of "robot’s dream of love pt.01"
"A simple melancholy acoustic / double-tracked vocal piece that is perfect listening either for watching the greening of spring or the falling of leaves in fall. Released on Sundays in Spring."

Good stuff, does remind me of Modest Mouse, but still doing their own thing. Sound quality is excellent, but the cover art could be better.

Technically a good recording, originality is a little weak.
